Welcome!

P2P Protocol (Power to the People)

This is an adaptation of Pavel Tsatsouline's strength protocol covering at least 12 no more then about 20 workouts.

This is an effective strength training protocol that is typically based on 2 sets of heavy weights at low reps. At the beginning of a training cycle you typically begin at about 60% of your max and slowly progress upward typically hitting your max towards the end of the cycle and exceeding it at the end. We'll be experimenting with this adaptation geared towards bodyweight movements.
